Father Oluoma berates gospel musicians, says Church has been turned to a place of entertainment as he reveals Mercy Chinwo charges 10 Million naira to lead worship in church.
Rev. Fr. Oluoma, a pastor from Nigeria, claims that churches have turned worship into entertainment. The clergyman stated this in a recent sermon in his church.
Fr. Oluoma stated during the sermon that gospel musicians get paid millions merely to deliver a 10-minute worship service in churches. He explained that Mercy Chinwo, a well-known Nigerian gospel singer, might demand up to N10 million to sing in churches.
We have made religious worship expensive. If I have to bring Mercy Chinwo here to sing, how much will I have to pay? How much do you think she will charge? 10 million naira. Then I will have to collect the money from church members to pay her.
These are the tragedies we have brought into the church. An artist will come to the church to minister for 10 million or 5 million, and that’s too much. I’m not against paying her; you must pay her because you invited her.” He said.
